The Long March Up From Obscurity: Technorati Authority Now 40, Rank 199700

I just noted that my Technorati rank is now below 200,000, and I have left my blogger youth behind in that my Authority is now 40.

The open question is when, if ever, my Authority will reach or exceed my age, which is just short of 64, the next power of two in sight now that I have passed 32.

Any guesses as to when this might be? I’m hoping to do it by the end of year. You can post your guesses via a comment to this post.

I just reviewed some of my older posts, and found via Moving up the long tail that I went below 200,000 early this past December, though the growth of the blogosphere, as well as a period of inactivity this past spring while I prepared my talk on promoting open technologies in schools, led to a steady rise in my rank.

The technorati rank is similar to golf in that the lower the number the better.

Look out, Scooby-Do. Here I come!

I know it’s a long haul, as Sboody-Do’s current Rank is 51. His Authority is 5981.

I also know I face a handicap is blogging mostly about open-source and education, while Scooby-Do covers the universe.

But that’s ok, I’ll ride open-source up the long tail as far as I can, having fun all the way.
